It’s at this moment that we point out the obvious: On social media, Jasmine Curtis-Smith seems like a lady that has her shit together. She shares bits of her life, speaks out about her advocacies and shares the occasional product endorsement. It sounds, to the rest of us, like a perfect equation, like a well-oiled machine that just keeps running. But nothing could be further from the truth.
As Jasmine shares, having the responsibility to share and engage and keep up morale isn’t an easy task. It’s daunting and the pressure is on for a woman like her. When the days go on and she knows she hasn’t posted, the anxiety comes back. When the days have passed and the photo or statement is still being seen and read, the anxiety stays.
Does this paint a picture of a woman who has her bearings in order? Perhaps not. But whatever your opinion, our hats are off to our November cover girl, still—and we’re happy she gives herself the credit she deserves.
“On most days, yeah [I consider myself put-together],” she states. “I like to be on time, I like to have my things organized. If I can do it on my own, I’d rather do it. It makes me feel whole and put-together.”
